Scan to get started
Give them a head start
It doesn’t take a lot of money to develop smart investing habits. Your teen can buy fractional shares of stocks and ETFs (if you’ve opened a stock account), or bitcoin (if you’ve opened a separate bitcoin account), for as little as $1.
guide their learning
With stocks, you decide whether your teen can invest in low, medium, or highly volatile assets as defined by our proprietary risk rankings. Together, you can learn about the world of investing with educational resources like Money 101, a free financial literacy program taught at high schools across the country.
Watch them flourish
Use your Step app to monitor their investments alongside their saving and spending activity. Before you know it, dinner conversations will be about companies to watch, market performance, and how patience and long-term planning pays off.
